Staff Picks: Super Tuesday!!
To welcome voters to this year's biggest primary (a.k.a Super Tuesday), I came across a book that was just published by the University of Illinois Press entitled: Women for President: Media Bias in Eight Campaigns by Erika Falk. It talks about past and present media attention to women in politics.
Here's what some people are saying about it:
"A powerful evidence-based look at how the media has overlooked and undervalued women presidential candidates since they first ran over 130 years ago. This is a must read for political operatives and voters across America."Happy Voting Everyone!!
